Exploring Indiana's Trails

Join us for the 2015 Annual Fundraising Luncheon for the Greenways Foundation. Check out your sponsorship opportunities, then sit back and relax as we take you on an epic journey to discover the excitement and diversity of Indiana’s trails & greenways. Be prepared for an adventure as our host guides you through what’s new to explore on Indiana’s trails — as well as a few surprises! You may think you know Indiana’s trails & greenways — but you haven’t explored them with Indiana Jones!

We appreciate your continued support of the Greenways Foundation. As our primary annual fundraising event, your luncheon tickets and sponsorships help us to continue serving our mission of working to promote the growth, enhancement and use of Indiana greenways.

The event is Tuesday, February 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Hyatt Regency, Downtown Indianapolis.

Sponsorship opportunities and individual registrations are now open! You may register online at Eventbrite or download our 2015 Luncheon Registration Form (PDF, 2.2 MB) to complete and mail with your check.

We look forward to seeing you in February!

Bike-ped plan funding announced

The Indiana State Department of Health is providing funding for Indiana communities to prepare a community-wide bicycle and pedestrian master plan. Applications for the funding are due January 30, 2015. A minimum of two plans will be funded in this annual round. Successful applicants will begin their plans no earlier than July 2015, with funded plans required to be completed by the end of June 2016.

The ISDH Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity invests in partnerships and activities that work towards improving the health of all Indiana residents. The adoption of bicycle and pedestrian master plans by Indiana communities is seen as an effective way to invest in changes to policy and the built environment that support healthy community outcomes.

A digital copy of the grant application form is available on the Indiana Healthy Weight Initiative web site. For more information and questions, contact Pete Fritz at (317) 234-6808 or pefritz@isdh.in.gov.
